Thanks to Small Potatoes of WPDesigner.com I have 50 free accounts to give away to his special WordPress themes club. This club only cost $5.00 to join but guarantees you at least 12 WordPress themes. Considering the themes that SP has already developed, this is a very affordable way to gain access to some premium quality WordPress designs.
However, you will have to earn a free membership by participating in the Contribute To WordPress Contest.
The rules are simple. The first 50 people who leave a comment describing a UNIQUE way of contributing to WordPress will receive a free WPDesigner theme coupon. When I say unique, I mean, don’t copy and paste something into the comment field. Come up with something on your own.

Since I don’t have an account on the perfomancing website, I’ve deciding to post my nominations in the form of a blog post.
For Best Writing/Blogging Blog I nominate WinExtra.com. Out of the variety of blogs I read, Steves blog usually generates some sort of response out of me with each one of his posts. He tells it like it is and doesn’t attach any BS to what he has to say. It’s a good read and I keep going back which is why he gets my nomination for that category.
For Best Blog Podcast I nominate TheGlobalGeekPodcast. Dave Grey and his ASSORTMENT of co-hosts :) do a wonderful job producing a top notch, informative show each week. At least they try to do it every week, but sometimes you just can’t control certain situations. Whatever the case, TGGP is still near the top of my lists in terms of awesome podcasts that everyone should be listening to. This is why they get my nomination.
As for Best Blog Webhost, That one is pretty easy and I am nominating AnWebshoting. Not going to go into the details as to why I’m nominating them because I already did that in this post, Time To Pimp Your Webhost
As for the other categories, I don’t think I’ve been involved in the blogosphere long enough to provide other nominations for other categories.
If you have a performancing account, be sure to read this post or if you don’t have an account, you can do as I did and make a post containing your nominations while linking to the original story.
Tells me which magazine, Jeffro2pt0.com was sort of but not quite featured. The article in question was highlighting a particular web site/service. To compliment the text, there was a small screenshot of the front page of this particular web site. That website actually had a banner that displayed JEFFRO2pt0 on their front page. So in essence, I was sort of but not really featured in a magazine.
The first person who tells me, which magazine along with the site they wrote about in the article will receive $10.00 via PayPal. If you are the first one to provide a photograph or screenshot depicting the article and associated screenshot, I will send $15.00 your way via PayPal.
Let the games begin!

Today is the last day of the month and so it’s time I announce the winner of the Real World Web 2.0 Photography Contest. The winning submission was sent in by vipworld The winning entry features an artistic shot of someone holding an Ipod. The Ipod features a pastel red color as well as rounded corners, two facets which make up most web 2.0 websites.
There were only two entries over a two month period leading me to believe one of two things. Either web 2.0 doesn’t PHYSICALLY exist outside of the internet or, I didn’t promote this contest well enough. Considering how many views this post has as well as the amount of folks finding this page via Google searches, I think it’s safe to say that the majority of concepts and things attributed to Web 2.0 are within the confines of the internet.
Thanks to all who joined the group and spreading the word. Congratulations to Vipworld. Your 1 Year Flickr Pro Membership has already been purchased. Enjoy!
It’s nearing the end of the month and so far, only one person has submitted an entry to the Web 2.0 Real World Photography Contest. I can’t seem to bring myself to award one individual the prize without some sort of competition. So, I have decided to extend the deadline of the contest to the end of September. I’m hoping that word about this contest will be spread around and hopefully, more entries will be posted before the end of the next deadline. If not, I’m going to assume that Web2.0 truly is an online phenomenon that doesn’t exist outside of the interwebs.
It’s nearing the middle of August and I’m sad to say that although there are 4 members who have joined the Flickr group, no one as of yet, has submitted any entries. Up for grabs is a free, 1 year Flickr Pro membership which will be awarded to the person who submits a photograph that best represents Web2.0 in the real world.
To enter this contest, click on the image shown above, or the one on my sidebar. The contest ends on August 31st but if there are no entries by that time, I will extend the contest for another month. Web 2.0 surely has to exist in some or fashion outside of the interweb right?
I’d like to take this opportunity to tell you about a contest that will be starting on August 1st and ending on September 30th. I’d love to see if anything dealing with Web 2.0 exists in the real world which is why this is a Web 2.0 photography contest. The idea is simple. Take a photo of anything that resembles Web 2.0. This could be objects with rounded corners, pastel colors, unique billboard advertisements, architecture, perhaps a product name with the word BETA next to it. Anything that you think you would see in the world of Web 2.0. At the end of the month, I will go through all of the entries to judge which one best represents Web 2.0 and the winner will receive a free Flickr Pro Account which will be good for one year.
Here is the low down concerning the contest, also known as rules:
2 Entries Per Group Member
No Photoshopped Images
Do not use multiple Flickr accounts
Nothing Pornographic or Violent In Nature
I reserve the right to determine whether an image is a rule breaker or not and these rules could be updated or changed at any time prior to the contest completion date. Have fun, and lets see how creative you people are!
